Richie Rouge: Could Probably Crush an Apple with His Bare Hands (If He Tried Really, Really Hard)
When I think about the most entertaining talkers, interviewees, and promo men in the history of the professional rasslin' business, several names immediately spring to mind: Jim Cornette,"Nature Boy" Ric Flair, Double A Arn Anderson, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, Dick Murdoch, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Rock...
...and of course the IPW's resident wordsmith Jumpin' Jeff Farmer.
Another man who deserves to be included in the conversation: Richie Rouge.
Lex Luger, eat yr heart out. For Richie Rouge is truly "The Total Package." He has the look (by look, of course, I am referring to his keyboard player in an '80s synth-pop band atheistic), the Southern charm, the down home and common sense values, a sensible, cordial, and affable temperament, the steely resolve and unwavering purpose, and can talk circles around his foes -- like Bulldozer -- with his homespun, sophistic colloquialisms and idioms.
He truly is a man to be respected. As opposed to that big stinky nasty wart infested Bulldozer.
After watching this clip, I know what yr thinkin' Facebuster Nation: "Doggonit Malibu, Richie Rouge is the most courageous and determined babyface in the IPW."
Fair enough Facebuster Nation. But I implore you, DO NOT share that sentiment with this man...
